Schuylkill River 8.5-Mile Easy Road Ride

Not ready for our 23-mile mixed trail and road ride? Now you can meet up with us in Philadelphia and take this easy 8.5-mile paved trail and road ride. With a total rise of less than 30 feet, this ride is a comfy mosey up and down the scenic Schuylkill River.

Just like the harder hill ride, this flat ride starts and ends at the Rocky Statue in front of the Museum of art. You'll pass Boat House Row, the rowing grand stands, the Water Works, and Fairmount Park.

This ride is perfect for beginner to intermediate riders on road, hybrid or mountain bikes.

After the ride,we'll join both groups of riders up for food and drink at a local pub.

Here's a map of the ride.
